17  EARLY LEARNING / Teaching Your Child Music / Re: Why I Avoid Classical Piano Training for My Daughter (+ Little Musician Update) on: June 18, 2014, 02:45:28 PM
I can only chime in as a non-musically educated parent of two young children who both acquired perfect pitch after using Little Musician-- the solfege method has been superior for us because it helped my kids internalize the pitch by expressing it simultaneously while playing an instrument. Singing letter names might have given the same results (I cannot speak on it as we did not travel that road), but for singing comfort (avoiding the recurring wide mouth shape of singing letter B, C, D, E, and G) and for differentiating similar sounding letter names, we found solfege to be superior. My kids are "bilingual" and can use both interchangeably although they are stronger in solfege.  After some recent lessons with a piano teacher that used letter names, my daughter will now spontaneously sing in letter names, as well. After her initial lesson, the teacher marveled that "she uses the language solfege so naturally, like she is a native speaker." That was a greater compliment that she'll ever know! smile

Hi Lori,

Hugs to you! I am sure your daughter is sweet and spectacular regardless of what the "test" says. Just keep nurturing her at whatever level she is, and that is the very best thing you can do regardless of the school's opinion. I appreciate you sharing your experience here with us.

Wink to Learn Japanese

Little Ambassadors Japanese School in Hawaii filmed two DVD's based on their classes. We have these, they're cute and easy to follow although not the most exciting thing in the world (no animation for the most part).
http://www.littleambassadors.com/

Shichida brand Japanese musical powerpoint style flash- a bit dry for little ones though. Sample available on the link.
http://www.tlcforkidsonline.com/yomekaka.html

There is a company called Benesse that makes many educational dvds starring a tiger called Shimajiro
http://www.shimajiro.co.jp/

The YBCR people are coming out with a Japanese version, I saw a clip on youtube but they pulled it from their website so make some adjustments. Hopefully it will be available for purchase soon. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mPeZfJG5bX8

There are some absolutely ADORABLE clips on youtube done by TokyoHeidi, especially the toothbrushing one. Awesome! smile https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCnrXT1MVcEoaVe33JZ_IkMA

It's best to open the Japanese youtube videos in Google Chrome internet browser and set it to auto translate so you have some kind of clue what it is you are looking at, even though it's an automated translation.
Random collection of videos:

Japanese Learn to Draw Videos:
https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PLV22lJfjA2X2KYtf7Zmz9ndLHvYYCgN__

I am fairly confident these are the Shichida right brain children's DVD clips in Japanese-

Do Re Mi Song in Japanese with hand motions:
http://gyao.yahoo.co.jp/player/00025/v12296/v1000000000000001961/?ap_cnt=3

Hopefully that will help you get started. Do you have an ipad? I can recommend some apps as well.

Dear lighthouse09,

Community members can give each other "Karma" points to show appreciation or disapproval over what others have posted on the board. When a member makes positive contributions or helps another member, folks can click positive or negative karma to express their reaction. I hope that clears it up for you.
23  EARLY LEARNING / Teaching Your Child Music / Re: 4 Year Old Boy Plays Piano Better Than any Master and PianoCoachPro on: May 15, 2014, 11:47:36 AM
lighthouse09,

Please accept my apologies if you legitimately posted an affiliate link without realizing it, 99% of the time if a new person has very few posts and posts that they DO have are centered around affiliate links, they are simply here to "spam" the forum. It is in hopes that others will click their link and spend money, thus earning them a commission for referring that person. For our regular participating members of the community who truly desire to converse with other EL parents about parenting and EL, it's fine to post an affiliate link in your "signature," it is best not to devote an entire thread to it.

And there are certainly many discussions about other learning products, we encourage sharing anything and everything having to do with teaching your child. I found the link to the creator's website and I will include it here for you.  Feel free to continue sharing and discussing it on the Product Reviews board. Welcome to the forum.

24  EARLY LEARNING / Teaching Your Child Music / Re: 4 Year Old Boy Plays Piano Better Than any Master and PianoCoachPro on: May 14, 2014, 01:20:17 PM
You have 3 posts here on the forum and appear to be here only to post your affiliate link (which happens to pay out 70% per sale). That looks suspiciously like spamming the board, so Skylark edited your post accordingly and I am about to do the same. Subtle affiliate links shared by participating members of the community are one thing....people here just to make a buck without offering anything in return are another.

I look forward to reading your future contributions to the group. Good luck on your search for a great piano program, we have been enjoying the Piano Maestro app. Just look in the itunes app store.

Great find for those who were able to get it! I got it myself just in case I could use it to help other kiddos down the road. I am going to mark this post "expired" so no one tries to download it and expects it to still be free. On another board, members are complaining about being charged $50, so I don't want to confuse anyone. I suspect they have "run out" of the free option. Give it a try through the link and see if it still offers $0, but others have said it no longer works.

Thanks for sharing!

Just a FYI, got this in my email today. I am still on their mailing list although I am not local anymore. Looks like they are beginning to travel elsewhere in the US.
---------------------------------------------------

5 year old "Kylie" was adopted at 10 months,  suffered from fetal alcohol syndrome and was classified as “failure to thrive”. Within weeks of starting the Connections movements, "Kylie" grew 2 inches and gained weight.  Her mother writes…

“Let me tell you all the success we have had using the Connections movements! The biggest thing is that she and I have a real relationship now! That block in her brain that kept her from attaching is broken! We giggle and cuddle and hug - eye contact! And adult interaction! She uses her words and boy are they articulate! I get a trip out of her expressing herself - she is clear and direct when expressing her feelings! We have only had one "RAD" melt down (where she shuts down) since we have started these but when she had that we were able to snap her out of it and move on positively like it never happened! Usually it was days of coming out of it.  And we have been exposed to a lot of her "triggers" with no effect! She accepts and submits to discipline as a moral conviction now - not victimizing herself or fighting against it which I think comes from the communication barrier being lifted. Her flight, fight and freeze is so much more rational now! She reacts appropriately to her environment and when she is aroused with fear or anger etc., she is able to calm down and move on! That's huge for her! She conquers a play ground, hiking paths and a game of tag, with a new sense of discovery and courage! We have a new fun way of dealing with bumps and bruises- " look mommy at all my fun" - school has been fun and a joy! She is so smart and has a real eye for detail. We forever are grateful to you and your husband for doing this! ~ Stacy B.
